My focus on creation is from a wonderful birthday gift that was given to me by a dear friend of mine in San Francisco. For my 40th birthday he gave me a baking lesson for a group of friends at Richard Festen’s, Baking Arts cooking school.
A few months after my birthday we were able to schedule the baking class which also coincided with my upcoming move from San Francisco to Los Angeles. I invited some of great friends to participate and we had a ball. With my move to SoCal in just a few weeks there was a bit of NoCal/SoCal roasting that was also delivered throughout the evening!
Wine was served, teams were devised and my competitive friends tackled a savory soufflé and desert soufflé challenge. I think that we ended up drinking, talking and laughing more than absorbing our lesson but our soufflés served as a great meal and the experience we have together was just another amazing creation of memories that will last forever.
